10 BOCNEWS.com MARCH 2018 While the main stream liberal news continues to sound like a broken record, wondering why the world is starting to short circuit, true Christians can see that God's prophetic Word is coming to pass at record speed. Jesus clearly taught that in the very last days, people will be living as they were in the days of Noah and Lot. In those day, because of their deliberate rebellion, unwilling to glorify or give thanks to God, their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Because they were worshipping the creation instead of our Creator, Almighty God gave them over to "sinful desires, to shamefull lusts, and, to a depraved mind." Amos 8:11-12 teaches that in the very last days, the Lord will send a FAMINE, not of food or thirst for water, but a FAMINE of hearing the Word of the Lord. Matt 13:11-12 says that the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to YOU (the faithful) but not to them (the rebellious). Whoever has (wisdom) will be given more, and he will have an abundance! Whoever does not have, even what he has will be TAKEN FROM HIM. Paul, in 2 Thess says that the spirit of antichrist will con- tinue to blind those who are already perishing. "They perish because they REFUSE to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason, God sends them a 'powerful delusion' so that they will believe the lie, and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness" No question, many today are walking in total spiritual blindness. The absence of Jesus has obvi- ously lured the lost into the hands of Satan, leaving a path of destruction. Blaming school shootings on guns instead of the removal of the Holy Bible has been a worthless excuse to keep God out of the pic- ture. If the experts and the media would read the Bible, they would realize that there will be perilous times in the last days (2Tim 3:1-3). Many teens today are preoccupied with playing high powered action packed military combat vidio games, rebel- ling against authority, smoking pot, ditching school, having sex, and watching porn. Several fast food stores located near some high schools are keeping their bathrooms locked due to theft, and because their toilets were getting clogged with meth pipes. This last Florida school shooting left many with tears while others were displaying a noticeable lack of sympathy and affection. As some are protesting, others seemed to be desensitized. Is legalizing pot a modern day solution to the growing DUI's, drunken driving record breaking fatalities, not to mention teen pregnancy, abortion, suicide and addiction? Top experts want to get rid of guns because they do not know how to cure the spiritual oppressed, or the demon possessed. They threw away their spiritual instruction man- ual many years ago. Police officers being gunned down in the streets along with the disrespect of our flag clearly indicates that we are living in the very last of the last days, when the love of most will wax cold. Its only a matter of time before we see Christians persecuted in the streets right here in America! Stadiums will most likely be turned into the old Roman coliseum, as many will be entertained with the bloodshed of the tribulation Saints. No question, Almighty God is send- ing warning that judgement day is approaching. He will not strive with man forever (Gen 6:5-6). The signs of the times are increasing as we can see that the most recent hurricanes and forest fires are becoming a prophetic preview and a forerunner of things to come. The enormous volume of earth- quakes and volcanic activity taking place around the Ring of Fire on the Pacific coast lines are about to unfold as the Cascadia fault line is building even more preasure now then ever. The San Andreas fault is over due to explode, yet people in California are living as if this is all an animated fiction movie produced in Hollywood. The last 3 major earth- quakes- 9.0 in Indonesia 2004, 8.8 in Chile 2010, and the 9.0 in Japan 2011, set the earth off its normal rotation, leaving experts wondering why we are having abnormal weather patterns all around A Powerful Delusion By Michael Forti Continued on Page 12 Peter wasn't concerned about his reputation, getting his paycheck, or keeping the church doors open for the wrong reasons.
